Aquatic Resort at Port Macquarie
The USU owns the Aquatic holiday resort, in a glorious location on the Hastings River at Port Macquarie on the north coast of New South Wales. The resort consists of a Motel and a Caravan Park.
Stay in comfort at the holiday resort and enjoy great discounts and great style while relaxing in what many say is the best climate in Australia.
Our industrial and legal staff are based in the Union’s Sydney, Newcastle and Wollongong offices.
The Union's Industrial Department represents the wage interests and conditions of employment for Collective Agreements.
Industrial advice and representation is also available for a range of individual matters.
Journey to Work Insurance
USU General Secretary Graeme Kelly and your USU Executive are proud to announce the introduction of the USU Journey Protection Scheme. As members are aware, in 2012, the Liberal and National Party Coalition State Government voted unanimously to strip away workers compensation journey claim protections leaving workers in NSW without insurance if they are injured going to or from work.
The USU provides members with the opportunity to obtain advice from the Union's Solicitors on:
* The purchase and sale of land or home
* Mortgage loans
* Probate and wills
* Financing enquiries
* Conveyancing matters
* Criminal law
* Litigation generally
That’s why they run a dedicated program of offers for members of Unions, with a whole new collection of deals available every few months.
The Union provides a Mortality Benefit payment to the immediate next of kin of a deceased member. The death of a member can be an extremely difficult time for families, emotionally and financially. The Union, through its Mortality Benefit programme, endeavours to make benefit payments as soon as possible to approved applicants.
